One of the most pleasant evening's
of the citizens' course of entertainments
for the past winter was that of last Sat
urday evening. Mrs. Hylvla McGuire
assisted by Miss Beulah Cad well as
vocalist gave a lecture and recital to
titled ' Echoes from Dixie Land."! Be
Ing herself a child of the south of form
er days, her interpretations were clear
ly true to life and had a living person
ality that made them very interesting.
Mrs. McGuire gave some stories show
ing the darkey in all bis moods and
from her intimate knowledge she gave
the dialect In its true form. Her word
paintings of old scenes,, the generous
hospitality, the chivalry, the true
southern courtesies of life were all that
one could wisb to hear. She possesses
a well trained voice and has a person
ality that la easy and at the same time
forceful with her audience. Miss Cad
well rendered a number of true south
ern melodies in a most pleasing man
ner and responded to several encores.
The students have greatly enjoyed
these evenings and since the enter
tainments have all been of a very high
order, they have been generously re
paid for their time.
President E. D. Keesler has been

Acreage Needed.
BY P O. HOWEl.t..
Bocrelary Monmouth Evaporating and Cm),
nluf Co,
Inasmuch as there is some dicus-
iiou and uncertainty among the farm
ers as to what fruits and what varie
ties should be grown for sale to can
neries, we have written to several can
neries and learn that there is as yet
but little demand for the Logan berry
for canning puriHises. All kinds of
blackberries and raspberries are ac
ceptable, but the evergreen and mam
moth are recommended, also the Cuth
bert red raspberry and the American
and Grepg black-cap raspberry. The
cherry mostly canned is the Royal
Ann, but the Lambert aul Weter-
house aro also well recommended for
this purpose. Bartlctt jiears with
some other varieties to fertilize them,
and Pouter, early crawtord, and Tuscan
cling peaches, are used in unlimited
quantities. Tomatoes aro also eMiite
proniaoie io ine grower; L.ivjiigMuiie b
Favorite and Perfection are the lead'
ing varieties.
The large prolits in cherries are pub
lished in all our state and county pa
pers, and there is strong assurance
from fruit men in this state, and those
who have visited us from other states,
that an equal profit may be expected
from pears. The small fruits are also
worthy of attention, yielding from $751
to $150 per acre. They may be grown
a few years in the young orchard and
thus make it remunerative from the
beginning while the trees are getting
ready to bear.
Vacant town lots may be utilized
for growing berries. ,
' Farmers in other counties are turn
ing rapidly to fruit growing, and now
that Polk is to have three canneries or
one-fourth of all in v the state, every
farmer in the county should have, an
orchard and a berry patch.
The district convention of the
Knights of Pythias which was enter-,
tained in this city by Homer Lodge,
No. 45, was one of the most pro
nounced successes of a fraternal
nature that has come to Independence
in some time. There were more than
a hundred visitors from outside
lodges many from lodges at a dis
tance. Appropriate window decor
ations were in evidence in all the
business houses of the city. Early
in the afternoon the town began , to
show convention spirit, and as the
afternoon wore away the streets
became more and more congested,
delegates arriving by boat, by trains
and by teams froln Salem and other
towns close by. Badges were so con
spicuous on the coats that it seemed
almost everyone was a Knight.
The business session of the con
vention was detained until the urrival
of the last train of the day, which was
at 8:30 and on which came the
delegations- 'from Dallas, Falls City,
and other points. . The address of
welcome was delivered by L. R.
Stinson, who acted in place of B. F.
Jones, whose illness prevented his at
tendance. The address of welcome
wai responded to by J, H. YanWirikh'
td Albany. The convention vp

by 118 point.
The banquet which followed the
bunnee Mionof the convention took
place in the Mason's banquet hall.
Thin was a sumptuous afVair, at which
no pains were spared in its get-up. A
smoker followed the banquet and
toasts were responded to unitl almost
all the prominent visitors were called
on. The Independence orchestra fur
nished music during the banquet, ad
ding much to. the pleasure of the oc-easion.

David B. Campbell Gives Bril
liant Piano Recital in Nor
hwI Assembly Hail.
A concert of unusual merit was
given bikt Friday night in the assembly
hall of the Orecon Mate formal
School at Monmouth. Mrs. May Bowden-Babbitt
presented her pupil, Da
vid B. Campbell, in piano recital, in a
program demanding technical skill
and musical interpretation of a high
order. The young man was fully
equal to the occasion and acquitted
himself with great credit.
Mr. Campbell displayed a musical
tslent in early childhood and his dili
gent and faithful practice has advanced
him to a degree ol pronciency rarely
attained by one of his years. A large
audience greeted him cordially on his
first appearance and the interest and
enthusiasm increased with each num
ber. At the conclusion of the pro
gram, .both Mr. Campbell and his ca
pable instructor, Mrs. Rabbitt, were
showered with congratulations.
Miss Florence Bowden assisted in
the recital, playing a double number
in her usual finished style. Her
many friends wish that Miss Bowden
might favor them more; frequently
with her violoncello music. The fol
lowing program was rendered:
Beethoven ..... .Sonata Op. 31 No. 2.
a. Idyl Op. 28 Nq. 4.
b. Sea Song Op. 55 No.5.
c. Concert-Etude Op. 36.
a. . W 1 . J! 1
a. Massenet meiouie up. j.o.
b. Nevin The Kosary.
Miss Bowden.
a. Etude Up. zo jno. 8.
b. Etude, Op 10 No. 5.
c. Berceuse Op. 27.
d. Polonaise in A flat Op. 53. .
Tschiakowsky. . . . Valse-Caprice Op. 4
Schubei't-Liszt. Erl Koenig.
Mr, Campbell possesses a musical
temperament and the technical skill
to interpret and execute the most dif
ficult compositions as was evident in
this recital. His playing, of the Bee
thoven sonata was intelligent and
showed that the interpretation of such
masters is well within his powers.
His MacDowell group was delightfully
rendered, from the delicate and dreamy
tones Of the Idyl to the brilliant tech
nique of the Etude. The Chopin num
bers called for musicianship of the
highest degree and the reading given
by .' ir. Campbell was of surprising ex
cellence. The intricate fingering in
the etudes, the delicate phrasing in
the berceuse, and the tremendous tem
po of the polonaise were brought out
with decision and confidence. The
Tschiakowsky valse-caprice is full of
technical difficulties, all of which were
surmounted with perfect ease. . The
closing number was the culmination
of the evening's trinmph, the spirit
and fire of the Erl King being por
trayed with a dash and freedom that
completely captured the audience.
There is undoubtedly a brilliant fu
ture before this young man, endowed
with so much talent and intelligence,
and it is to be hoped that he may be
able soon to enjoy the advantages of
European travel and study.
